Cloud Native NLP Query Processing with Solr / Lucidworks Fusion

Sessions |

Natural Language for query interpretation is fast becoming a requirement for all new search engines. But, creating your own models and NLP pipelines is expensive, complicated, and time consuming. So, why not use those provided in the cloud? We will discuss what NLP intelligence on a query can be gained by using Cloud-Native NLP APIs, and show ways that this understanding can improve the user search experience. We'll demo this by using Amazon Comprehend and Amazon Comprehend Medical to process queries submitted by users and show how the information returned can be used to customize search results. The methods and information shown here can be used for any Cloud-Native NLP service (e.g. Google NLP AI and Microsoft Luis).
